Shush…it’s a Secret!
If you would like to keep the membership purchase a secret, call the office 403.287.3469, and state that you’d like to keep the purchase a secret until after specific date. Recipients of gift memberships purchased online automatically receive an email notification once the purchase is processed.
A gift membership to the Calgary Horticultural Society is a great way to share the joys of gardening.
A gift membership is a wonderful way to say Happy Holidays!, Thank You, Happy Birthday, Happy Mother’s Day, or Happy Father’s Day, or to celebrate other occasions throughout the seasons.
Enhance your gift with a gift card to one of our many discounters, or use your membership card to purchase gloves, seeds, trowel, pruners, or a pot to go along with the membership gift. Add a copy of the Society’s 2024 calendar or our The Growing Journal gardening journal to make it a complete Society gift. A membership paired with a good wine is always welcomed, too!
Garden centres are great places to do your gift shopping!
